-- america is in serious problems with respect to health care. virtually every other developed country has a better system than we do. ours is costly. in places it's ineffective. it's deeply troubled. the time has come to really see that people who have no insurance can get insurance. now, the good part about this bill is that it is structured so that it is phased in. so that over time we can watch it. we can change it. for example, this next year, small business tax credits go in place and $5 billion is available for insurance for those who have been denied because of preconditions. so these people will be able to get insurance right away. things like the exchange and the public option come on line on 2014. so the bill, in a sense, is incremental. we can watch it. we can change it. the important thing is that we debate it. there be a free flow of amendments. that some will pass, some will fall. the bill will go to conference. it has to be reconciled with the house bill. so we're at the beginning now of what is a great national and key debate. >> senator lieberman, let me pick up with wher

consult with from time to time, democracy for america, which showed that a very significant number of democrats would be much less likely to vote for senator lincoln if they knew she was opposed to the public option or if she were to filibuster the bill. so people are not looking for people to filibuster the bill. it's one thing -- if you happen to vote against the public option, we can disagree. you certainly have every right to vote against the public option. what you don't have a right to do if you're caucusing with the democratic party and you're on a committee because of the democratic party is vote against your majority leader as he tries to conduct the business of the senate. that you don't have a right to do. you don't have a right to do is to stop the american people from considering this bill. or stop the senate from considering this bill. >> governor dean, do you think that these four senators can call themselves democrats when it's, you know, it's written right in the party platform? universal health care for all americans? >> look, there's plenty of room to disagree wi

to a vote. it's another thing to say to america basically, i'm not going to let this come to a vote. i have my own reasons here for this so i'm just not going to let it come to the floor. if i were harry reid, i'm not, but if i were harry reid, i would call his bluff. i would call republicans' bluff. let's show america what these people are all about. let them stand there day after day in the well of the senate reading the phone book doing whatever it would be, anything but it have a vote here. show that on national television every night and let's see how the american people feel about it. >> i agree, ned lamont, i always held it against you. you went up to maine about three weeks and took a vacation. you're such a yankee. you had to go to maine for a couple of weeks. look, let's get to this question would you be -- >> chris, i'm so sorry about the philadelphia phillies. >> i knew you had to do that. ron raised a good point. why don't we do it like "mr. smith goes to washington." why don't we bring in the beds and go to the mattresses literally okay, republicans and joe lieberman, if you w
's unemployment rate will stay elevated for years. >> oh, my goodness, this is just bad news for america. >> it does, especially after yesterday's news about the real unemployment rate. in october, the figure hit 10th.2%, a 26-year high. >> we talked about how it's going to affect the elections in 2010 around here because we talk about politics, but this recession may affect the 2012 election and the 2014 election. when we talk about, mort, that we've reset the economy, that we're not going to be driven by just crazed consumerism, that means something. we either start building things here in this country again, or this economy doesn't turn around, and people don't get back to work. and maybe, just maybe one day washington politicians will start focusing on that. >> you know what it brings forward too is a really dysfunctional political system to address these issues. they put together a stimulus program, and so much of it goes to pet projects of the individual congressmen and senators and so much of it gets dislieutenanted. it doesn't really focus in on the problem. here we are a year la

. think about this. finally people in america, if your kid gets sick, you're not going to be thrown off your health care coverage. if you've got a kid you want to keep on your health care coverage when they're in college until they're 26 years old, they can stay on your own family's health care coverage. you have all kinds of prevention provisions in there that really bring us to looking at health and not just health care and health insurance down the road. so i think the $127 billion saving on the deficit, you might says that's a conserve-a-dem issue. i think it should be for everyone in the country we finally have a bill that will save that much. we have a problem in this country that we've been able to put together a health care bill that brings us closer to bringing down the cost for health care, that will allow american companies to compete with companies in other countries, that allow small businesses who pay 20% more for their health care to finally be able to get some leverage so they can less expensive health care? that's what this bill is about. >> i didn't mean to imply that
